Plenty of fun at Early Years Fair despite lower than usual turnout

Gavin Hooge, 5, plays at the Early Years Fair.

The annual Early Years Fair was held at Dr. Perley Elementary School, April 8. The fair is organized by the Boundary Family Individual Services Society (BFISS) and brings together every Boundary organization that works with young children.

“Anybody involved with early intervention or early learning is invited,” said Linda Stooshinoff, who helped coordinate the event.

This year’s event was relatively quiet compared to past years with about 20 visitors.

“We didn’t really do anything different,” said Stooshinoff, noting that the event was in the afternoon when many young children nap.

There was a benefit to the lower attendance; every visitor was able to win a door prize. The children also enjoyed playing with the toys, making art, molding play dough and chatting with the penguin from Ready, Set, Learn.
